    There are ten different standards for o-rings.
    While we are most familiar with AS568 and metric, the list also includes:
    BS 1806
    ISO 3601-1
    DIN 3771
    NFT 47-501
    JIS B2401
    BS 4518
    SMS 1586
    ISO 6149

    This fantastic cross-reference from PAI lists virtually every non-metric o-ring out there, and is very handy when you are trying to spec an oring from your own measurements, to replace via one of the suppliers in this thread.
    And PAI is an easy group to work with!
